Tedford Housing works to end homelessness in Maine by providing, in collaboration with others, shelter, housing and services to those in need. We work to help people become more self-sufficient and advocate for change so that no one faces the prospect of being without a home.
Tedford Housing is founded on the principle that safe, decent, and affordable housing is a fundamental right. This principle exists within the larger context of quality of life and access to adequate income and health care. Tedford Housing affirms the responsibility each of us has for our own behaviors and the collective responsibility we have for one another.
Tedford Housing envisions a community in which no one is homeless. Everyone in this community will have a safe place to live, enjoy optimal health, and have means to a good quality of life.
